. and the president is fully aware of this. i remember him saying, a lot of these people don't even think i was born here and he wasn't sure what he meant here. that's the theology of it. there's a theological belief at the heart of this, the president is somehow not only legitimate, not american, not even from here, that's an element of theology with these people. it goes back to the birthism and rejection of him from the body politic. they never accepted his legitimacy. >> i think a cosmic thing is true. >> if for you're ted cruz who was born to an american mother up in kentucky, i'm all for that. the worst crazy thing is donald trump is president obama was born to an american mother in kenya. if you accept cruz as a president then you should accept president obama as a legitimate president. he wouldn't answer it. even in the narrow bounds i set it up. >> chris you're asking for something they can't give you. you're asking for some moral and political integrity and consistency and they don't have it when it comes to this president. >> number two. goes to tea party congressman of michigan during a
millions of people to suffer without health insurance. just because of their ideology. >> i don't want to defend all of it, but when they start talking about how the president oversold the ease of which it will come in, weren't they the guys who called the iraq war a cakewalk? just to remind people. what real oversales is about. >> one of the most important points i think todd makes in his excellent piece in politico is that the way this town used to work is that when a bill was passed, a big bill, a big program, you knew it would need tweaking along the way. you know, there were unintended consequences. sometimes you see what happens with regulations and tax code stuff. you have to go back in and make what are called technical fixes. back in the days of tip and gipper, maybe if you lost the fight you bring up a bill and say this is neutral to make this work better. you could get it past both sides. say we want the program to work. that can't happen now. so therefore obama and the executive -- >> explain why. because you can't get the votes to do anything in the senate. >> the republic
, without replacing it, without giving us any substitute, they'll finally vote in favor of plans that don't provide decent insurance. it is kind of crazy and it shows you, michael, just how far the debate has gone off the rails. we're not talking, republicans aren't talking if they don't like obama care what to do about the 45 million americans who have no insurance or tens of millions of americans who couldn't get good insurance because of pre-existing conditions, insurance industry scam jobs. so that's a big picture. instead we're focusing on what jonathan rightly called a slice of the issue, which is a problem, it's a small problem, but we're not talking about the big issue, which is how do we have decent health insurance system to all americans. >> speaking of crazy, republicans denounced president obama for its lack of clarity when it comes to a small piece of the insurance market. yet they advanced lies from the law, this say sampling of this year. >> you sent us the most dangerous piece of legislation in the history of the united states. >> yes, i think so. >> let's repeal this fai
there's a sort of a code of respect among presidents, recent presidents. they don't call each other names like this. cheney, is he exempt there the rule? >> no, he's not exempt from the rule. but he made himself exempt. i don't think you'll hear george w. bush making a statement like that. but dick cheney has a different agenda. first of all, his daughter is running for the senate in wyoming as a tea party candidate, rather absurdly, since she's basically from the beltway. and dick cheney is trying to help her out by appealing to the tea party worst. i think that's what's going on, number one. number two i think republicans more generally, chris, have always been infuriated by the high personal standing of president barack obama. by him as a candidate. by him as a president. by the fact that he has seen to many of his supporters and to most americans, to be an honest, straightforward, decent guy. and this somehow is especially infuriating to republicans. it drives them crazy, and they're doing everything they can now given the opportunity to try to drag him down to their level. and
. they kept coming at obama, saying you don't count as president, you can't pick your cabinet. we're going to question the patriotism of your cabinet, we'll vote against everything. leading the charge has been ted cruz, the worst of the bunch who votes against everything. i've said that. if caroline kennedy's nomination comes to the floor, i would guess he would vote against that for ambassador to japan. total negativity. >> that's the interesting thing about this. when we first started hearing rumblings of the nuclear option the last few weeks and looking at these nominees to the circuit court being denied the up or down votes to the democrats, this is a scene in a play that we've seen before and about to see again where harry reid will make the threats, it comes down to the wire and then a deal struck, a gang of six, 18, whatever it is to preserve this tradition in the senate. the amazing thing is republicans put president obama, put harry reid and the democratic party in a position if they did anything other than what they did today, they would have looked weak. democrats had to make th
, saying, you don't count as president. you can't pick your cabinet. we're going to vote against everything. leading the charge, of course, has been ted cruz. who votes against everything. if caroline kennedy's nomination had come to the floor, i would have pet on cruz to vote against that. total negativity, and now the democrats have taken the attack against it. >> that's the interesting thing about this. when we first started hearing rumblings of the nuclear option and the nominees to the circuit court being denied the up or down vote the democrats wanted, we said this is a scene in the play we have seen before. harry reid will make the threats, it will come down to the wire, and there will be a deal struck. they'll want to step forward to preserve this tradition in the senate. the amazing thing here to me is two things. one, republicans put president obama, harry reid, and the democratic party in a position where if they did anything other than what they did today, they would have looked weak. republicans put them in a position where basically, republicans were saying we're not going to
